When I was raiding the Space Bags to see what I fit back into, I ran the clothes by Hubby for a second opinion about the fit. Flash forward to me getting dressed this morning, and he claims he didn't see this top during the try-on, and that the sleeves aren't a good idea.
He "suggested" I wear something else. When it was too late to do anything about it, of course! Rrrrr!
Admittedly, when I wore this top to work pre-fattitude, my arms were slimmer and the sleeve openings hung together better:
So, does this top needs to wait a few more pounds until resurfacing?
As long as we were taking a side view...
Well, I USED to think these pants looked good on me. I am increasingly convinced that hoopskirts are the way to go... who's with me?
*sigh* At least the secretary I drafted into photographic duty says I've lost weight. But not enough for this top to drape like it used to. It's not really tucked in, it just sits shorter than I remember, and I put the belt on last-minute to at least make it appear to be a planned look.
What's black, blue, and red all over? For court this morning, I think I blew the whole "cohesiveness" concept out the window:
I was going to grab the teal jacket, but chickened out at the last minute. And I've been punished. I only had one court appearance this morning before I could chuck it. My punishment? The size-two opposing counsel was dressed way better than I. I hate that. Am I petty or what?
Did the big earrings look good with the top? I'm still trying to get used to bigger earrings-- I spent years only wearing small hoops. The whole "choosing today's jewelry" is pretty new. I habitually wore the same thing 24/7 until it broke. Then bought new "semi-permanent" jewelry.
I caught a glimpse of myself in glass, and thought even these pants (which are longer than most of mine) are a little short for my Ariats. I should have gotten a pic...
Maybe it was because I wore a belt today! I will need to further test this hypothesis.

FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.
DJ/Radio Producer-turned-Lawyer attempts to dress like a grown-up. Sometimes I comically fail. And I occasionally post fun stuff, like music videos, book-club reviews, or photos of beauty or oddity.
